I heard great reviews from family members and was really looking forward to their famous Portuguese cuisine. On this site the location is completely wrong. Opposite sides is town centre!!

Traditional Espetadas (char-grilled beef on skewers) was delicious and cooked to perfection at the requested medium to well done. Also the Picadinho (pan fried beef in a wine sauce) was fantastic. Good value for money because the dishes come with side several dishes included.

Our table for six was at the back of the restaurant but very pleasant and not cramped. The staff were pretty attentive and weren't perturbed by the fact that we arrived in three tranches over the space of 25 minutes. We had a variety of dishes between us; starters ranged from avocado and prawn salad to sizzling prawns, and my... More

Just as lovely as I remembered. Ordered the king prawn and beef espetada. Cooked perfectly and more than enough... More

We popped in for an evening meal the other night. Well what a miserable bunch of staff hardly a smile or a word. The food was okay but nothing special. I will certainly not be going there again until they get new staff or cheer up. There are a lot better Portugese restaurants in the island

This restaurant was recommended by a local and we were not disappointed. The portion sizes were ample and the food was cooked well. The espetadas as came with chips, salad, rice and a another tasty dish. The service we received was friendly and efficient. I would say the food was excellent value for money and we would definitely return!
